The results briefly showed that the individuals that were interviewed had their debut with drugs at around the same age. Everyone of them started off with trying hasch and marijuana the first time and they did it in company of their friends. They have all had different experiences with drug-related support and treatment, but at the same time their opinions on some of the support and treatment that exists in Sweden are similar. Furthermore their social networks are similar yet have big differences and their fright of being caught by police or other instances of justice is palpable. (Less)
